Ice Mountains and Plains High-resolution images of Pluto taken by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft just before closest approach on July are the sharpest images to date of Pluto's varied terrain-revealing details down to scales of 270 meters.
Sedimentary Signs of a Martian Lakebed. This evenly layered rock photographed by the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover shows a pattern typical of a lake-floor sedimentary deposit not far from where flowing water entered a lake.
